Wednesday 31st July 2019
Interesting results from the much-discussed deployment of Hoveton Parish Council’s SAM2 sign on Stalham Road in July. Over a four-week period, more than 170,000 vehicles were detected. The speed limit on this stretch of road is 40mph. Only 6% of vehicles were recorded at speeds of 45mph or more. There were over 150 vehicles recorded at 60mph or more, and one at a truly eye-watering 100mph. As always, Hoveton Parish Council has passed this data to our local police.
During this deployment the sign was set to trigger a warning at 30mph. When it is next placed in this location, the sign will be calibrated to trigger at 40mph so we can compare the results and judge what effect, if any, the sign is having on traffic speeds.
Just a reminder that Hoveton’s Charity Summer Fete is taking place this Sunday, 4th August, 10am to 4pm, on the playing field at Hoveton Village Hall. Organised by Wroxham & Hoveton Lions Club, the summer fete offers plenty of fun for all the family, including live music, craft stalls, classic cars, dog agility shows, vintage tractors, refreshments, and much, much more! Hoveton Parish Council will be in attendance at this year’s fete too, so why not pop along, have some fun, and meet members of your Parish Council? Entry is £2.50 for adults (children under 16 are free) with free parking available.
There are lots of fun groups and activities taking place at Hoveton Village Hall & Park in August, including Boogie Bounce, yoga, keep fit, bridge club, and exciting new activities such as Sound Bath and Cinema Club! Car boot sales are now held on the field every Friday and Sunday morning (weather permitting). Gates open at 8am for booties and at 11am for the general public (£7 per car; for more details please ring Dave Penrose on 07796 964653).
